Another news which is very hot topic of all seo discussions is Google`s De-indexing of all private blog network services . To me this is not a surprise and this was gonna happen day that`s why i always do for myself and advise others too to stick to use only best practices while doing seo for your websites. BMR (Build my rank ) is gone out of business because of this new Google sweep and many other networks are also getting DE-indexed.
Google has also announced that they are updating their algorithm here is what they say in their official statement
We often use characteristics of links to help us figure out the topic of a linked page. We have changed the way in which we evaluate links; in particular, we are turning off a method of link analysis that we used for several years. We often re-architect or turn off parts of our scoring in order to keep our system maintainable, clean and understandable.
in their next algorithm update Google is going to punish those websites hard which are getting UN-natural backlinks and are over optimized page for example webpages with keyword at many places etc .
It seems like whole world of SEO is changing again and for some people sky is falling 😛
